RE: Acronyms and abbreviations

Let me add to the confusion...

If you have a reference on a page that provides the description and then the
abbreviation/acronym in brackets as part of the text of the page, does one
have to add the <ABBR> tags?


"The suspect was taken into custody by agents of the Federal Bureau of
Investigation (FBI)..."

I am retrofitting a site that has many references of this sort and it would
save me a lot of time if I did not have to change them all.

Many thanks...
